Maria Theresa von Paradis was a pianist, singer, and composer. It was uncommon for a woman to succeed in music during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries but she overcame that obstacle, as well as the blindness that she developed as a child. She studied with several prominent musicians of the day including Antonio Salieri. Paradis is also known for founding a school for the blind and a music school for girls.
